This movie was beautiful. Don't let the huge age difference or possible bad ending stop you from watching this. It was so beautiful and sweet and I really felt something with this movie. The characters actually grew a real relationship, not the basic inappropriate stories that older woman/younger man have. This is probably one of my favorite Japanese movies now, the story wasn't really original or anything, but they showed a true relationship and how people feel going through growing old and loosing the abilities that you used to have. The director of this movie did wonderful, there were lots of scenes with the sun gorgeously shining on the set and the actors. There were also great moments of symbolism the director did with the dark vs bright rooms. It was delicately made with deep feelings. I really hope that you decide to watch this.

Heaven for Book Lovers

My motto after watching this movie: Grow my book collection until my last breathe and then convert it into a public library. (Yes..!)

The moment you thought...you would sit down and enjoy this movie..you went wrong.

This movie won't let you peacefully enjoy its story, rather torment you and play with your heart and mind with its tear-jerking plot.

I won't lie... My heart literally ached. If you are one of those emo people then you would definitely cry over this movie.


As mentioned above... This movie is very much appropriate for any form of Book lover out there (including me)...
I'm totally convinced that... Japanese 'romance' genres have an aesthetic of their own. Your mind will feel happy to enjoy the earthy/grounded feeling these type of movies provide.
And I am also convinced that...no other country's movies/series can make you feel comfortable with 'Taboo' topics as Japan.
Thank you for that.
